BIOGRAPHY

Florence (Woolsey) Hazzard, amateur historian, was born in 1903. She earned a PhD in psychology from Cornell University in 1929. While a graduate student, she married Albert S. Hazzard, a classmate during both high school and graduate school. Hazzard regarded the raising of their five children as her primary work, with history as her hobby.
